If you want to know what an action-packed full life sounds like just listen to this interview with Andy Briggs. He was born in a Bradford pub, grew up in Bradford, Guiseley and Yeadon and has a passion for Tibetan Mastiffs!
Andy is a family man and an accomplished landscape gardener. You must hear the story about when the phone rang and it was Emmerdale Farm on the other end!
A lively interview with a very nice man.
